Although undoubtedly one of the most unhealthful foodstuffs a body can consume, the Navajo treat known as frybread is inescapably delicious. While not a brick-and-mortar business, Rocky’s Frybread is similarly inescapable if one finds themselves at El Rio on a Saturday night, or some other Mission bar at a randomly opportune moment. The pop-up with the simplest conceivable menu – one savory item, one sweet, sometimes a vegan taco, other times something akin to funnel cake – is technically free, paid by donation only. It’s also a thumb in the eye of San Francisco’s decadent food-forward culture. Why mess with $4 toast when you can get four times the calories for the same amount of money? As a rule, everything fried is better than everything not fried, and when served by a larger-than-life character like Rocky, the rule of thumb becomes more like an ironclad law of physics.
